Because of my initial experience with Facebook, I also thought it would take forever to build a group of people to share and socialize with. But there are many Googlers (plussers) there, and they want you to enjoy Google+. They were very gracious to go out of their way to involve me, "+1" my comments, and comment on my posts. And, they shared Circles with me! Many in those Circles added me to theirs. I have never built connections on any other social network as fast.
Not many of my family and friends from Facebook use Google+ yet, but I am meeting new friends and having a great time there! I'm sure I will always use Facebook too, but Google+ has helped me explore new social "Circles" and meet people I may have never met elsewhere.
Oh yeah! I almost forgot. Join me in a Circle at gplus.to/tcledford!
“Being a huge Twitter fan, I was reluctant to spend much time on Google+, one thing brought me there and that was Guy Kawasaki's passion for it. In this book, you will learn all the tips and tricks to be a social media whiz in no time from the master of Google+ himself. Interspersed between Guy's practical advice for all social media, not just Google+, are the unknown secrets of Google+ circles, streams, and much more. This is truly a handbook for Google+ but offers much more than a dry list of how to's."
